If you think that you’ve got a pretty good shot at being a budding film maker, then the Flip Ultra 3 might be just the device for you. Available in either black or white colors, this camcorder which is going for £159.99 is touted to be the simplest and easiest to use. I can vouch for that, owning the original Flip, and while the resolution of that model is nothing to shout about, it certainly is a snap to use. This is a third generation bad boy, boasting High Definition resolution that should be able to preserve your memories in clarity and detail for a long, long time to come.
With 8GB of internal memory, it can store up to two hours of 60fps 720p HD videos in MPG4 format. Zoom is available as well, but that maxes out at a rather pitiful 2x. Powered by a trio of AAA batteries, I’d suggest you stick to rechargeables if you’re going to use the Flip Ultra 3 for a long, long time to come. Just as well, there is a built-in USB connector that makes it a snap to transfer videos over to a computer whenever it is full – perfect for travelers since you need not tote around another pesky USB cable.
